University of Texas President Asked to Resign

Posted on 7/8/2014 by with 0 comments

On Sunday, the co-chairs of the House Select Committee on Transparency in State Agency Operations sent a letter to Paul Foster, the chairman of the University of Texas System Board of Regents, reminding them of their previous request that no “adverse employment action” be taken against University of Texas at Austin President Bill Powers and others.

The committee is currently investigating the activities of one of the board members and has repeatedly told the system that the employment of individuals, including Powers, who might be called as witnesses should not be tampered with while the investigation is in progress.

The chancellor and the board are scheduled to discuss — and possibly terminate — Powers’ employment at a meeting on Thursday.
